Our Scottish solicitors can operate a No Win No Fee service and can assist you in making a No Win No Fee claim. You can trust us to get you the compensation you deserve.
You’ll need to provide us with the details of what happened to you and information about your personal injuries. For example, if you were injured in a car accident, we’ll need the details of when and where the incident occurred and who else was involved, or if you’re claiming compensation for a work accident or an asbestos related disease, we’ll need details about your employers.
It also helps if you can provide evidence of the incident, such as photographs, video footage or witness statements. This information could help support your case if you choose to proceed with a claim.
One of our specialist personal injury solicitors will evaluate your compensation claim based on the information and evidence you’ve provided. We’ll be able to tell you how successful we think your personal injury claim is likely to be. We appreciate that every claim is completely different, so we endeavour to assess each one on a case by case basis. Our services are 100% confidential and we aim to treat each case with the utmost sensitivity and care from start to finish.
It’s important to note that there are time limits in making a claim for personal injury. In Scotland, the “Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act” sets rules about when claims should be made. The general rule is that a claim should be made within three years from the date the incident occurred or the date you first realised you had suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence.
If you’re a family member claiming on behalf of someone who has died, the claim must be made within three years of the date of their death. In Scotland, time limits for children don’t begin until they reach 16 years old and in cases where the injured person lacks mental capacity, there’s no time limit.
When bringing a case which took place whilst abroad, local laws may apply and time limits may vary. It’s therefore important if you’ve suffered a personal injury to contact Slater and Gordon’s specialist personal injury lawyers as soon as possible once the incident has occurred. We’ll be able to let you know if you can make a claim.
